Restitution Can Ruin You Financially. Get The Right Lawyer In Your Corner.
Whether you are charged in federal or state court will have a lot to do with the alleged financial losses. In Missouri, anything over $500 is a class C felony, while losses exceeding $25,000 is a class B felony. Cases in which the loss amount approaches six figures are usually prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in federal court. These cases also usually have many alleged victims and also deal with banks or other financial institutions.
